- Author(s): Eduardo Roig Segovia and Maria de las Nieves Mestre Martínez.
- Conference’s title: JIDA’15. III Conference of Teaching Innovation in Architecture Barcelona.
- Place: ETSAB-UPC.
- DOI: 10.5821/jida.2015.5072.
- Summary: Numerous international organizations have highlighted the urgency and importance of sustainability education in all educational fields and especially in the university (Aznar et al. 2010). Its profound effects on areas of knowledge related to applied creativity require a strong pedagogical renewal, which current polytechnic academic structures can fit with difficulty. In the face of the focal gaze of classical didactics, this pedagogy requires the exercise of the peripheral gaze typical of a new centrifugal context. We must redesign a tool that allows to overcome the “mechanistic fallacy” sustained by discipline throughout the last century and that has consolidated the separation of environmental sciences from architectural design (Roaf and Bairstow 2008: 4).
- Keywords: Sustainability, creativity, inductive pedagogy.
- Abstract: Numerous international organizations have highlighted the urgency and importance of education for sustainability in all areas of education, especially at university (Aznar et al. 2010). Its effects on knowledge areas related to creativity requires a strong educational reform, which current Polytechnic academic structures can match up with difficulty. Against the focal view of classical didactic, this pedagogy requires a training on peripheral view towards a new centrifugal context. We should envisage a tool to overcome the “mechanistic fallacy” sustained by the discipline over the last century, which has consolidated the separation of environmental science from architectural design (Roaf and Bairstow 2008: 4).
- Key words: Sustainability, pedagogy, university.
